Queer'e eşsiz bir katkı yaktı. Aile, gizlilik ve queerness temalarını keşfetmek için çizgi romanları kullanarak, 44 yaşında intihar eden ve / veya intihar eden kapatılmış bir queer olan Bechdel ve babası arasındaki karmaşık ilişkiye introspektif ve dürüst bir bakıştı. "hafif yürekli" ama zorlayıcı, hızlı bir okuma.
Crap, crap, crap. Quite possibly the worst book I've ever read. Take all of Anne Rice's worst traits as a writer--her self-indulgence, how long-winded and overly detailed she can be, her narcissism--all of it comes full circle to create this piece of crap book. I think it's her fantasy come to life, which is why it's so bloody terrible. The one and only good part of this book is when she tells the story of the violinist. Rice is at her best recounting history; she does her research and truly loves the eras she writes about. I wish this book had been completely about the violinist. That might have made it a worthwhile read. Steer clear.
I adored this book. I read this with my fiction book group (even though it's a non-fiction book)and I was totally floored by it. It made me want to read all of the books she mentioned. I thought it was an interesting look into a country that (at the time)I hadn't spent much time thinking about.
